We just spent five days on Koh Tao at The Place and I have to say it definitely lived up to all our expectations. Positioned up on the hill above the main beach with great views over the ocean, this is the perfect place to getaway from the village huslte and bustle but still be only a few minutes away...

I think the personal treatment of the staff is what made this place really amazing. First, they greeted us at the port and gave us a free ride to the hotel. Then, (when all the hotel's staff were very awkwardly lined up to greet us - I would skip this), they took us to our gorgeous room and gave us...

Our stay at The Place was absolutely fantastic. The staff is very helpful and super accommodating and the view is worth the hike. There is always someone on call for you and ready with suggestions. While we were there Franzi and Coral helped us out so much and made everything so relaxing. The villas are gorgeous, private, and beautifully furbished....

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us your review. Without our guests’ honest comments we wouldn't have been able to constantly improve our offer and the level of service we strive for, over the last 5 years. Thank you also for highlighting our last minute rates. On the rare occasions we have available villas, we do,...

We chose The Place based on how well others reviewed them and we were not disappointed! Coral and Be did an excellent job ensuring we were happy; from picking us up at the ferry, arranging in room private dining and massages, to answering questions about the island, and taking us to our departing ferry, they made sure we were enjoying...

I really enjoyed the stay at The place. The villa 1 is ideal: very well designed and decorated, the view is spectacular, the service is very attentive and effective (You are given a phone upon check in and you have one focal point to guide you all the stay), mini bar nicely provided and reasonable prices. Totally recommended ....

I'd read other reviews, but I didn't think service could be this great. We didn't see another guest, and our contact with the staff was minimal - helpful little text messages onto the mobile phone they handed us on arrival.. "If you're out later, flick me a text and I'll clean the room for you". "Sorry about the weather today...

It was the first time my girl friend and I had a vacation together. So, I had tried to find out the best place for a fantastic time. Even though I expected so much, The Place was the better than what I expected. We have stayed The Place for 4 nights. And, I really felt regret I couldn't stay more...

It couldn't have been better. It has spoiled us for any future holidays - we had to upgrade at the next place, as it was awful compared to here, and it still wasn't anywhere near as nice! The team there are fab too - so helpful.

The Place is honestly the best hotel experience I've ever had. The staff is incredible. Coral was our host. She met us at the pier in the rain and checked us in (she did the same for us on the way out). In addition, Coral and another staffer, Be, provided incredible recommendations along the way.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Place consists of nine luxury boutique villas, all with private infinity pools, that offer you total privacy and complete relaxation. The resort nestles charmingly in the hills above Sairee, close enough to be convenient for restaurants, bars, shops and the longest beach on the island, but far enough away to savour the tranquillity and refreshing breeze that comes with being in the hills. ... more   less
